Subject: Small Hall
What is now the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, the "Paramount" only held about 3,000 people. I've seen Deepak Chopra here and he made it feel like a living room. I can only imagine what the '76 Dead did to this place. What a big sound in such a small place. Aside from that perspective, this show has the hotness. Outrageous set list that someone contrived in a dream and woke up to somewhere late in Let it Grow only to realize the best in life is the reality of a Help/Slip/Frank snooze button.
Subject: 1976 -06-03
A great sounding show. This show comes alive when you play it. Highly recommended. I love this era of the Dead and this is one of the best sounding shows from that time.
Subject: nice tempo-relaxed
Around And Around
Help On The Way ->
Even to a bunch of stoned college students, it was obvious that the SBD-gen cassette tape in circulation mid-80s was too slow. But it still was a good show: one of the best LLR ever; for a Scarlet Begonias that doesn't lead into FOTM, the jam is great; and even the Donna-bashers have to admit that she's on-point tonight. But at the proper speed, it's a gem! The dynamic range, clarity, separation of instruments--amazing! The up-tempo tunes (e.g., Might as Well, Dancin') don't lag. And yet the lazy, heroin-sound is still there where it should be: LLR, Fingers, Help>Slip>Franklin's. Thank you, Hunter, Jay, Betty, Patrick Murphy. You are magicians. I hope that you know how much happiness you bring into people's lives because of your work. And after 25 years, I can finally hear the finale to a steppin' Franklin's Tower :-)
I'm not a huge fan of '76 but this show is great!
Subject: franklins patch needed
there is a hole in the franklins tower, near the end, you can hear it as donna and jerry sing roll away the dew almost out of nowhere. there is an audience source and a matrix, but I prefer a true soundboard, and this would be the best copy if it becomes patched.
very much appreciate the work you guys do to edit and repost the music, keep it up.
Since 77 -
This is a near-perfect remastering/pitch-correcting effort by Hunter Seamons, of a GREAT show. I am really loving 1976, and even for that year, this one rises near the top. I know all the shows were unique, but this one is extra-unique.
The '76 laid-back vibe is here, with a special X factor. Maybe all that pent-up genius is shining through after the long break. Great, long and trippy Crazy Fingers. Let is Grow>Drums>Let it Grow is a darn tasty sandwich (and I'm not usually big on Drums). The Help>Slip>Frank is dreamy and blissful. So different from, say, 5-26-77, or Pembroke Pines, that it's like comparing very delicious apples and oranges. No real weakness in this magnificent show!
Of all the versions of this show, this one stands out as best, IMHO. Hunter Seamons has performed a labor of love for which we should all be very grateful. I think this show, and this version of it, easily earn 5 stars.
Subject: Simply perfect.
Great show from Portland on the 76 come back. Nicely remastered and repitched. Simply perfect.
Subject: Thank you for the pitch correction.
Increasing it by 3.41% made all the difference!
